Final check before ordering parts

Are there any improvements that could be made or things that I need to take note of before I order this? https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/LYwyNQ . I’m ordering parts from Amazon UK as I live in Ireland, apart from the graphics card which I am ordering from amazon.com https://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-GDDR5-DVI-D-Graphics/dp/B07MCDNQX2

I’d say buy a cheap 60gb ssd for windows, totally worth it

This one would probably be good.

Won't you get hammered by customs buying that card from the US?

Still a lot cheaper weirdly

It’s around €120 if you buy that from the US (including customs), but if you were to buy a rx 570 from England it costs you about €150 at least

us customs is dumb so that's surprising.

It would be Irish customs who he'd have to pay.

you could also save some dough by getting a 1x8 stick of ram, I know the whole "dual channel is faster" argument, but really it's a miniscule performence buff, and you coulld get a ssd with the mone you'll save, get waaaaayyy faster boot times, that would be worth it to me anyways, but up to you.

I considered that, but it’s €30 more expensive
